Testaments of the Past  by Dreamflower 8 Review(s)
LarnerReviewed Chapter: Prologue on 8/24/2006
Am restarting this, as I missed a good deal during the times of computer troubles.

And Sam still had problems not putting honorifics in. It must make Merry and Pippin both smile and shake their heads.

Author Reply: Lovely! I'm so glad your computer "tribulations" are over, LOL!

Every now and then, even after years, I am sure the old habits would still slip out. I'm sure that it did amuse Merry and Pippin a lot!

“Dear Mr. Merry and Mr.Pippin--
I see Sam is still practising not to call them "Mister" *grin*

I wonder what he has found? Off to read the next chapter.

Author Reply: Yes, nearly 20 years of saying "Mr." is hard to overcome, but he's trying!

Now what could possibly be in that box? Can't wait to find out!

I love how Sam wrote and then crossed out the Mr. before both Merry and Pippin's names.

Great beginning!

Author Reply: We're discovering new things in that box all the time!

Poor Sam, he's still trying to get used to not calling Merry and Pippin "Mr." Some habbits are hard to break!

Oh, this is sounding interesting! I wonder if it is...well, I'll just wait and see. :-)


Author Reply: I guess we'll find out, won't we? *grins* Hopefully, the cable company will cooperate so you won't have too long to wait before you see the next chapter.

I think this is going to be an excellent story! I can't wait for the items to be revealed...hopefully alot of angst filled chapters ahead. :)
I hope you update soon, or a lot in the next few days so I have something to read when I get home after my surgery.

Author Reply: I'm glad that you are liking it so far.

Jackie and I both wish you well with your surgery.

Intriguing. Can't wait to see where this is going and what sorts of hidden and forgotten treasures that chest contains.

Author Reply: Gryffinjack and I have had all sorts of fun filling that strongbox up. And we've only scratched the surface...

I love you...or rather I Love the plot of this story...I can feel that this will be a most excellent collaborative story.
I am rather interested in where this story is to go. Many Fanfiction writers don’t have a very well written beginning chapter to their story but this one-this one this one tinkled me pink. I couldn’t help but laugh at the sweet simple line “Merry and Pippin watched the posthobbit trot off down the lane.”
I didn’t necessarily think it was funny…but…if you were the reader and you read this imagining the look on Merry and Pippin’s faces as they might watch the posthobbit trot off the lane.
Personally I always imagine Merry and Pippin making rather amusing faces as they do simple things, such as they did in the movies. lol
For some reason I saw them as glancing at the posthobbit with their mouths slightly open with glazed eyes.... But I suppose I shouldn’t get in to probably think I'm strange
Sorry I didn’t mean to tell you my life story in this review so I shall leave you with the thoughts of the future chapters of this story.

I think this will be a sad/beautiful/heartwarming tale (after some angst ^-^) and I am looking forward to reading his story further.
I’ll try to not be so weird next review.^-^
I do hope there will be an update soon.
Till we meet again

Author Reply: I hope that the story will live up to all your expectations.

As to Merry and Pippin, and the posthobbit--I never thought of it quite that way before!
